Thumbs up Finding riding buddies

Awhile back, I was planning a vacation and wanted to get in touch with some locals for good tips or even to get together for a ride. Combing through forums didnít help, and I was disappointed when I headed out that I was on my own for discovering the best routes.

I have a hard time believing Iím the only one whoís had the experience. Thatís why when AltRider launched, I made sure we included the Rider Locator to help others looking for riding buddies, whether for a vacation ride or just weekend trips.

If you create a public profile, you can search based on riding preferences, skill level, and location. It's extremely easy to use, as well. You can watch a quick video demonstrating the tool here: http://bit.ly/bZAsFm

The Rider Locator is free, itís meant for everyone, and is hopefully a tool you can use.

Not impressed. Maybe the site is outdated or no longer in service.

Well, yeah, I would prefer to ride much better by myself, I think it is more enjoyment and it is a good time to enjoy yourself and keep up your thoughts
